Gardens in WelleselyThis morning I went to look for a specific photo and typed in the tag gardens to find it.

Gardens in Wellesley Massachusetts

garden-inspirationWell, I was amazed when I typed the tag garden at what I found. As if I had hand picked each photo, my garden tag gallery became a gallery of my favorite garden scenes.

Garland GateI never did find that photo I was looking for,

Mosaics were made to be used by such prolific photographers as yourself, Karen. What a lovely grouping of gardens and thank you for the kind offer to use one of your photos. I may be taking you up on that very soon.

Okay, I couldn't help myself and snagged the Garden Gate that you painted called "The Secret Garden." I'm using it as the gate to my friends and favorite blogs on my sidebar. If this isn't okay, I'll take it right off, but it was so much prettier than what I was using.

Gorgeous, Karen! Just stunning! That is one thing I love about NE, particularly the Vineyard, are the summer gardens. I was amazed at some of them, particularly the house that formerly belonged to Emily Post. It had what looked like "walls" of flowers. And the hydrangeas in that area were a blue that I have never seen by comparison... sort of a deep blue that is not like the pastel blues I've been used to seeing on hydrangeas all my life. And the hollyhocks... oh, they were amazing! I have long been a fan of Claire Murray rugs, and after going to NE, I understand her inspiration.

Thanks for sharing. You are always the soul of generosity and creativity.

My gardens are blooming like crazy with all the rain we have been getting. Earl started oodles of zinnas for me this spring and planted them all through the gardens. I can't wait until they start to bloom!
Your photos are beautiful Karen, I need to remember to take some time in my gardens each day and enjoy them while they are here!
